Hello everyone! This week Wednesday February 17th we will be talking about homosexuality. Youth group will be from 7:30 pm -9:30 pm with prayer at 7 pm. Grade 11's bring snacks! Also February 18th is the last day you can sing up for serve! I need a $70 deposit by then. Details below. Also be aware of these three events:
1. Serve- If you would like to go on serve this year we need a $70 deposit because of the high exchange rate. It is being held in Whitsinville Massachusetts on July 9-16th 2015. I hear the speaker is amazing! Cost is $400 per person because of the bad exchange rate. However there will be an opportunity to raise money through a fundraiser. And there is a possibility of the youth group subsidizing it further. If you would like to go I need your $70 deposit by February 18th 2015 so we can get the early bird rate.

2. Stamppot Dinner- On February 26th in place of the valentines dinner we will be doing a Stamppot fundraiser dinner with a desert auction for the Nicaragua trip. Doors open at 6:30 pm dinner served at 7 pm cost is $20 per person $55 dollar family rate for 2 kids under 12 plus extra funds for the desert auction. You can contact Pastor Bart or sign up at the welcome center. Please sign up by February 21st.
3. Winter Retreat- On March 4, 5, and 6 we will be having our annual winter retreat. Our speaker will be Pete Olsen who is the head of the Tools program which is a program in Toronto that equips teens to serve their communities. Our worship team will be Redeemer's Alpha worship team. This year it will be held at the church so we can have an opportunity to put into action what we will learn about that weekend: Reaching out to the hurt, lost, and lonely. As a result the fee for the event has dropped to $30 per person. You must be registered with Pastor Bart by February 24th.
